The global armored vehicles market size reached US$ 16.9 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 24.0 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.78% during 2023-2028.
Armored vehicles are automobiles specially designed with partial or complete armor plating to withstand explosions and attacks. Armored personal carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, main battle tanks, tactical trucks, buses, limousines, and sedans are common product variants. These vehicles provide high protection against basaltic threats, including missiles, bullets, and improvised explosives devices (IEDs). They are also used to transport military personnel and valuable items, such as money and jewelry. Armored vehicles are often fitted with weapons and a protective shell manufactured from multiple plates of corrosion-resistant steel, steel alloys, or special composite materials. Besides this, they offer better performance and higher reliability and durability to withstand attacks.
Armored Vehicles Market Trends:
The increasing product demand from defense forces across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. Armored vehicles are used for frontline combat, armed escorting, surveillance, and goods transportation on battlefields. The rising popularity of armored vehicles can also be attributed to the rapid militarization of law enforcement agencies to combat internal security challenges, which, in turn, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of armored passenger vehicles for self and family protection, safeguarding public figures, and securing valuable materials due to increasing insurgent activities and rising threat levels is favoring the market growth. Additionally, the integration of an active protection system (APS) that uses launchers, sensors, tracking radar, and countermeasure munitions to automatically detect and counteract incoming threat projectiles is providing an impetus to the market growth. Moreover, the increasing adoption of unmanned variants by defense forces to carry out intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and combat operations is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including rising incidences of asymmetric warfare across the globe, increasing military modernization, growing production of modular armored vehicles, and the implementation of various government initiatives toward strengthening the armed forces, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
